In response to the ever-growing number of touchscreen devices in the marketplace, it appears that Nokia wants to push further into the market. Details are sketchy at best, but TheStreet.com has reported that Nokia plans to release three touchscreen devices in 2009, complete with haptics vibration feedback intended to improve touchscreen typing and provide better feedback. The technology will be provided by Immersion, the company that Nokia worked with to license and develop VibeTonz in 2007. According to reliable sources, the devices may appear as early as fall.
On another note, what happened with Nokia's in-house Haptikos solution? Perhaps it wasn't ready for widespread release?
